247 (S.M.)

I love my Saviour, God,

Because He first loved me;

Because He shed His precious blood

To set my spirit free.

'Twas love my bosom felt,

And made me wipe mine eyes,

When low before His throne I knelt

To pour my feeble cries.

Touched by His dying love,

I melted into grief;

Swift on the wings of love He moved

And brought me sweet relief.

With my whole heart I'd love

The God who loved and bled,

Who left the shining realms above

And suffered in my stead.

How can I fail to love

A God so good and kind?

Sure He is worthy to be loved

By me and all mankind.
